Although for many people, Thanksgiving means family and friends and turkey and stuffing and stuffing ourselves, the day is also a reminder to give thanks. This Thanksgiving, take a second to be thankful for a few things you might not have considered blessings.
For most of us, failure isn’t the end of the world. When we fail, we can move on to something else, with luck a little wiser and a lot more likely to succeed.
People criticize only when they care. While people still care about you or your business, you have the opportunity to do something better, to do something differently, to change their minds–or to just meet in the middle.
When you’re sad, that means you care, and caring is the mother of changing things for the better.
Apathy is much, much worse.
Think of people you admire. Think of people who have earned your trust and esteem.
Be thankful those people are a part of your life. In fact, don’t just be privately thankful. Tell them how you feel.
You might have so many options and potential choices, both business and personal, that you feel stressed and even overwhelmed.
Be thankful you have choices–the more, the better.
Struggling helps you learn who you really are–and who you really want to be.
Be thankful you need to wait–especially for something you really want. The anticipation alone is worth it.
Think about something you wish you had done better or handled differently. Or think about something you wish you had done but for whatever reason, you didn’t.
They can be terrible–and you’ll miss them terribly when they’re gone. Smile, see the good in each of them, and be glad you have a family.
Many people would love to have a terrible family like yours.
10. This moment
Because you have the time and resources to do something like reading this message, that means you have time to improve yourself, to consider new ideas, to try to be a better person, to build better relationships with family and friends.
Time is our most important asset and what we should all be most thankful for. Time makes everything else possible.
